Start With Changing Your Diet:
-Drink lots of water: Water hydrates the skin and makes it appear smooth and supple which is what we want when we bare it all.
-If you don't have time in the mornings,or have a hard time eating breakfast; make a quick protein shake, or grab a protein bar. <product no longer available> ,
-Eat a bowl of oatmeal with strawberries or bananas in the morning or a high fiber, low sugar cereal with skim milk. This will help you fee full all day and aid in losing those few pounds that will make you bikini beautiful.
-Eats lots of salad. Top your greens with a light sprinkling of cheese or nuts for taste and use a spray on dressing. People tend to use less with these.
-Eating fish will not only assist you in dropping those few stubborn pounds, but will give your body the oil it needs to maintain supple skin.
-Eat yogurt for your sweet tooth and to give your skin a glow and contribute to weight loss.
-Eat lots of apples. Have as many as you want per day. They contain water for skin suppleness and fiber to maintain a full feeling. They are also chock full of good vitamins for the skin.
